R+B beauty Alicia Keys' anticipated acting career has already begun - she made an appearance on classic sitcom THE COSBY SHOW when she was just four years old.

The FALLIN' singer enjoyed some brief screen time as one of the many pals of star Bill Cosby's daughter RUDY - played by KESHIA KNIGHT PULLIAM - at the family house for a sleep over.

Keys, now 23, recalls, "It was a really, really good memory for me. The whole cast was so cool. We would sit on that big, huge couch and stuff and we all had to sit on Cosby's knee.

"He always tried to knock us off of his knee with the bucking horse thing. Of course, my favourite part was winning the game, because I was the winner!"
